– Keeping gypsum waste out of our landfill: a pilot project in the Laurentians


The conference will examine the gypsum waste recovery pilot project carried out in the Laurentian region in 2018. Drawing from the expertise and cooperation of the Régie intermunicipale des déchets de la Rouge, Synergie Économique Laurentides established the source of deposits across the territory of three regional county municipalities and worked closely with entrepreneurs to recover gypsum waste from worksites. In parallel, a study was performed to evaluate the potential of regional opportunities as well as determine best practices to develop an efficient waste recovery system. The conference will cover all project stages and results.
